America's Highest Civilian Honor

American Politics

Something from Hot Air:

I have an online petition to the president to award the Presidential Medal of Freedom to each of the six adults who died protecting the children at Sandy Hook on Dec. 14. I need 100,000 signatures by Feb. 15 to get a response from the President.

The petition is without any politics or partisanship, and I need help not only with signatures but also others knowing the petition exists. Can everyone please help?

Here’s the link to the petition.

Incidentally, for anyone curious about 2012’s Medal of Freedom recipients, from the White House:

This year’s recipients include cultural icons like Bob Dylan and Toni Morrison, as well as groundbreaking pioneers like former Secretary of State Madeline Albright and Pat Summit, the winningest basketball coach in NCAA history. Also honored were Dolores Huerta, who cofounded the United Farm Workers with Cesar Chavez, and Jan Karski, whose work in the Polish resistance allowed him to share a first-hand account of the Holocaust with Western Allies.

The Medal of Freedom is supposed to be America’s highest civilian honor. Maybe we should lift it up a bit?

Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
